The “Sustainable Trash” is a mix of found objects, polymer clay and oil paints. Gross takes discarded plastic children’s toys and then alternately disembowels them or covers them in a viscous spooge. The resulting works are in a word: nauseating.
But hey, sometimes dinosaurs DO throw up. Or as Gross puts it:
“The world is a serious place these days. This problem I address with my work.”
Truth. Nothing says “Your childhood is over, and there’s no going back” quite like an eviscerated Furby. Click through for more Sustainable Trash and a slideshow from the art opening.
